What kind of gas milage

OK, right now i have an 88 f250 with a 351 and a C-6 transmission. It sucks gas at around 9-10mpg. I am going to sell it and buy something different. I have always wanted a 93-95 lightning. Just wondering what kind of gas milage you guys are getting around town and also on the highway. Thanks

i believe they were factory rated at 13/18

i normally get about 14mpg around town and 18 on the highway but i have gotten 20mpg on the highway several times, you just gotta do the speed limit to do it, if i go faster then 70 it really starts sucking the gas (4.10 gears)

Looking for Fox body Fairmont, Zephyr, Cougar, LTD, Marquis or Granada wagon

I would tell you, but my rear tank pump just went out and I cant tell you exactly how far I can get with both tanks. Like Mike said, as long as you keep the speed limit, you will be able to hit the advertised gas milage, but the 4.10's are far to fun to look at gas milage.

I can get over 400 miles driving down the highway in my 94.

I'm usually around 10-12 city, and 12-15 highway. My big problem is I like boost and the kenne-bell produces at low rpms. - Brian
